Gremolata Stuffed Pork Chop

I am recently re-discovering pork chops.  I never really cared for them growing up.  But now as an adult I am finding them tastier than I remember them ever being.  So I decided to try out stuffing a pork chop with gremolata – a parsley and lemon condiment.  The results were VERY tasty!

GochuJang

  GochuJang is a Korean sauce that is kind of new to me. It is a red chile paste that contains glutinous rice, fermented soybeans, salt and sweetener.  It has a pretty unique flavor, it’s super thick and is pretty strong – meaning it really needs to be stirred into something to make a sauce or marinade ratherRead more

Sweet & Spicy

I had a bit of pork tenderloin left over from the recipe I made I my last post. I decide to make a quick stir fry and throw in some shrimp too, why not?  The whole dish came together quickly, didn’t use a ton of ingredients and had such great flavor – a perfect busyRead more

Perfect Dinner Party Main

There are so many recipes out in the world it’s rare that I have a single recipe on repeat. Of all the recipes I’ve made I think this next recipe is one that I have gone back to make the most.  It’s my go to dish for a dinner party.  It’s delicious, unexpected and best ofRead more

Easy Veitnamese

I find that lemongrass is kind of an odd thing. For being a stalk of grass I find it really strange that it carries such a citrus scent and flavor.  Lemongrass is used as an herb in Asian cuisine (which is how the next recipe uses it) but also as a medicinal herb in IndiaRead more

Since I bought mushrooms…

For my last post I used mushrooms, I had a few left over so I decided to put them to use. If you might recall I said I really don’t like eating mushrooms, but I do really like sauces made with mushrooms…so I went ahead to make a pretty popular mushroom sauce.  And while typicallyRead more

Long process with tasty reward

This next recipe had been an ongoing process for about a month.  Reason it took so long is because it involved curing meat!  Something completely new to me but given my love for cured meats I was extremely excited when I opened up the next cookbook and saw what I was going to be doing!

My name is Rosemary and I love Ramen

delish!

Ramen is awesome!  I love ramen.  I love it’s richness.  I love it’s complexity of layers of flavors.  When I see a bowl of ramen I smile.  It is my comfort food.  It’s like a hug of deliciousness.  I have been crafting my own recipe for ramen for the past month.  Trying out different things andRead more

Crumbly mess pork burgers

Well it’s winter and I am grilling outside!  I was super excited to fire up the grill for this next recipe but my hopes of a great burger were diminished when I realized the elements of the burger were not sticking together.

Recipe didn’t work out but there’s a back-up…

finally done

I had to plan ahead for this next recipe, since the marinating time was 3 days!!  The recipe came from the book: In The Charcuterie.  The recipe tagged was for Pork Brochettes with Herbes de Provence. (sounds fancy!)

Pulled Pork – kind of…

Closed bun view.

It has been fun now that I am getting back to cookbooks I have already visited and comparing to what I made the last time round.  Last time I used this cookbook I made a BBQ burger, you can read all about it here.

Prosciutto Time!

On our last trip to Eataly (you can read about it here btw), I bought a new book called “Prosciutto” by Carla Bardi.  The book is not only a guidebook for prosciutto but it also contains a few recipes.

Bizarro Riblets

One of my favorite shows to watch is Portlandia.  Portlandia is a sketch comedy show staring Saturday Night Live alum Fred Armisen along with Carrie Brownstein.  They play all sorts of characters.  It is a pretty funny, yet out there, kind of bizarre show.  I was really excited when my friend Jen got me “The Portlandia Cookbook” byRead more
